The L. Family | St. Michaels MD Family Photographer

There are some sessions where I want to share every. single. picture. on here, and I have to restrain myself, otherwise you'd be here all day. This is one of those sessions. Gorgeous family? Check. Awesome location? Check. Really good time, lots of laughing, beautiful sunset? Check, check check. Really, you can't ask for anything more :) Oh! And a certain little one is pretty close to celebrating her first birthday - so send some birthday wishes her way! :)

Miss G. is One! | Wye Mills MD Children’s Photographer

We got up bright and early to catch this little miss at her finest (unlike grown ups, it seems that all kids are morning people ;-)), and she did not disappoint! She dazzled us with her beautiful smile and was a total joy for her session. Singing the theme song to her favorite show, Bubble Guppies, definitely did not hurt either :) Her grandma and grandpa's house provided the perfect backdrop for this gorgeous morning. Her mom and dad wanted to capture her in this moment and remember her at this age, and I can't say I blame them. One is such a blast, their personalities are really developing and they are such fun little humans. Happy birthday sweet little G, it was wonderful to meet you!

Finn is One! | Easton MD Children's Photographer

This little guy is one! I don't know how it happened, I swear his newborn session was like, last week! I love this family, they are awesome and it is always so great visit with returning clients.  The older I get, the faster time goes, and watching these little people grow up right before my eyes is pretty special  :)  Getting to check in with people is something I look forward to - I'll be excited to see Finn and his parents next year as well! So, Finn.  He's a busy, rowdy, spunky, awesome little dude.  One is such a fun age.  He showed me his back yard, he smashed a little cake (he wasn't so sure what to think of it, but dug in a little!), had a little bath, and hung out with his very cool parents.  This was a fun session :)

Mark is One! | Easton MD Photographer

Mark is a warrior! A heart warrior, that is :)  This little fighter faced open heart surgery shortly after his first birthday, to repair a large atrial septal defect.  He came through it like a champ!

Before that, though, his mom asked me to document his first birthday by capturing some pictures of him pre-surgery, and tasting his first cake.  He wasn't sure about the cake at first, but he got the hang of it pretty quickly.  I <3 this little guy, he is pretty awesome. (PS Do you remember him from his newborn session last year? He was the squishiest newborn I've ever seen... ahhhhh, so much chunk! <3 http://www.catandfiddlephotography.com/mark-washington-dc/)

Want to learn more about congenital heart defects, and provide support to those brave children and parents dealing with them? Check out Mended Little Hearts, they are a fantastic organization dedicated to support, advocacy and awareness.

The Playgroup Turns One! | Eastern Shore Baby Photographer

It's amazing to see babies you've known since before they were born grow up right before your eyes.  Our playgroup buddies are all turning one, and it's going to fast! Happy birthday babies! First we have Sweet Caroline and her mama

And then there's pretty Miss Stasa

You've met pretty little Avery

And how about the whole group! (Ok, minus a couple who were napping... they didn't quite appreciate our schedule ;-))
